Depends on your point of view.  If you think both those things are true, it's not Trump who was doing the politicizing.

Agree and you didn't quote the part of my post where I said Democrats and Republicans can't help themselves.  Meaning both sides are politicizing.

 I've also said such in another post.  It's just what happens during a politics and gave examples like how Obama was scrutinized by the opposite party during Ebola and Bush widely criticized during Katrina. 

One difference I noted that Obama and Bush held up decently.  Bush even later said one of his big regrets was his handling of Katrina.  

Trump...well.......Trump very well could have left it alone by acting like a leader, but instead he politicized it by calling it a new hoax, as well as his son and VP politicizing it. 

Pot calling the kettle black.  It's really hard to complain about someone doing something to you that you're doing to them.  In my opinion

Florida votes on the 17th and I've finally decided to vote for Sanders.  I have plenty of issues with him and Biden and really was leaning towards Warren, but she's out.  I just think for things important to me personally like the environment and healthcare for all, tax breaks for billionaires, he's more aligned with what I'd like to see happen in an ideal world.  I'm also realist enough to know that fairy tales don't come true, but I have to vote my conscience and who I think is the best.

I'm actually kind of excited to vote in a Primary.  As a registered Independent, I've never been able to vote in a Primary before.

Ultimately, if he doesn't get it, then Biden gets my vote...duh.

I've mentioned earlier, that yes there are many in the media using this to try to damage Trump. I provided one example of a NYT columnist calling it "Trump's virus".  And that was almost a week ago when it was barely here.

I also believe there are many Trump haters who are ok with it spreading, the accompanying hysteria, and it's effect in the economy.  Although, I think Trump Jr's quote is a little over the top.

Please provide proof for your statement about Trump haters being "ok with it spreading."

You stated it was your belief.

Like the gut feelings Trump gets that are so disastrous?

I am a proud Trump hater.

I do NOT want coronavirus to spread.

I do NOT want innocent people to die.

The effects on the economy are understandable.

It is a pandemic.

You essentially parrot Donnie Jr's deplorable remarks, then try to throw in a little bit of a disclaimer, so your remarks will come across as palatable to some posters, but really, it is just Trumpster propaganda.

YAWN.

Stretch.

Nothing screams "politics" more than engaging in name calling when referencing a perceived political opponent during a crisis.

It also screams "unfit for office" and "conduct unbecoming the office."

You know how Trump is always alleging that cheating goes on during our election process?

It turns out he is right.

Unfortunately, for Trump, the cheaters are HIS supporters.

I don't refer to COVID-19 as "Trump's virus".  I refer to Trump himself as a virus, infecting America and causing disease, upheaval, and unrest!

Florida Woman Changed Voters’ Party Affiliations, Officials Say

Cheryl A. Hall falsified 10 registration forms, at least six of which enrolled Democratic and independent voters as Republicans, said the authorities, who are eyeing an additional 109 forms...

...   The woman, Cheryl A. Hall, 63, of Clermont, Fla., worked for Florida First, a voter registration group heavily funded by America First Policies, which supports President Trump. 

America First Policies announced plans last year to spend more than $20 million on voter registration efforts in at least four battleground states: Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

Alan Hays, the supervisor of elections in Lake County, Fla., near Orlando, said that although Ms. Hall was charged with submitting 10 false voter registration forms, he believes she might have submitted another 109 forms with false information...

...   Some forms submitted by Florida First contained faulty information in handwriting that did not match Ms. Hall’s, he said, leading him to believe that others at the organization might have also falsified voter information...

...   “It has absolutely nothing to do with party politics,” said Mr. Hays, a Republican. “If you’re misbehaving, I’m going to call you on it.”...

I refer to Trump as a blight.

Much like a weed infestation, or necrotizing fasciitis.
